High prospects: the CPH Group welcomes its new apprentices

Sixteen young people embarked on a new phase in their lives at the end of August. They began their vocational training in nine different units at the CPH Group’s operating sites in Perlen (Switzerland) and Müllheim (Germany).

To kick off their basic vocational training, the 16 new apprentices at the CPH Group’s Perlen Papier and Perlen Packaging companies spent a day among the mountain peaks of Central Switzerland together with the Group’s existing apprentice corps. That way, the new apprentices got to know CPH and their new work colleagues.

The CPH Group plays its part in countering the shortages of specialist personnel by offering a wide range of apprenticeships and providing its own training courses for urgently needed professionals in the technical field. This year, the Group has created three new apprenticeships: for future plant managers, paper technologists and automation engineers. The Group was also particularly pleased to welcome two asylum seekers who had completed their internships to its apprentice ranks. CPH currently employs 31 apprentices in its Perlen operations and six at its Müllheim site.
